Tyrmfar - Renewal Through Purification

Tyrmfar – Renewal Through Purification (album)

Release date: 22nd June 2019 || Genre: Black/death metal || Label: MTAF Records By mixing some fairly stock (but high quality) black metal, with chunky Swedeath and gothic doom, Tyrmfar have landed a very enjoyable sound. Where others may have opted for a “quiet/loud” approach in order to emphasise the travel of songs, they have […]

I guess that’s what can happen when you throw everything you possibly can at a release. There’s more to […]

There have been a few strong, death metal game-changers over the last year (see De Profundis, Revocation, and Allegaeon). While Fractal Universe have some similar elements, they are not just […]
